These are those wonderful little breads filled with cream cheese, rolled in a cinnamon sugar mixture, frozen and then baked. Very quick! Wonderful for a baby shower or bridal shower, and ever so easy! They are not, however, a diet food!

These sound great. My son loves cinnamon sugar and white bread. These sound great. The intro says something about dipping them in egg. The recipe doesn't mention that step. Could someone help me out please? Read More

I made these for a bridal shower and they went quickly. The smell is also very enticing. As a variation I cut the rolls into slices making small pinwheels. Read More

I had this recipe at my grandparents and they were AMAZING! So I made them at home. To die for...although one small hint make sure to roll out the bread first makes it SOOO much easier to spread and roll them for freezing. Read More

Wonderful little treat! I made these up yesterday and put them in the freezer overnight and they cooked up perfectly without even thawing first of which I was skeptical but it worked! Super simple to make these and they were delicious too! Thanks!!! Read More

Delicious!! I didn't change a thing about this recipe and found it fantastic (as did my entire brunch group). The only tip I would give as someone did before me is to make sure the bread/cream cheese mixture is rolled first before coating in cinnamon sugar. This prevents almost all the mess than if you try to complete roll by roll. I also pressed down the bread slightly after cutting off the crusts to obtain a tighter roll. Read More
